Revealed 2 & Hello Body Cream | Birchbox

On Monday I started talking about my July Birchbox, what I got in it and a detailed review of the Ruffian Nail Polish and Polish Remover Wipes.  Today we’re going to continue by talking about the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette and the Hello Body Cream.

Birchbox came through again with something I’d been wanting to try for a really really long time!  I’d had my eye on the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette ever since it came out.  It has an astounding 20 neutral and rose toned eye shadows in a super slim cardboard palette.  A lot of the colors are similar to the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette with some that are similar to the Naked 2 palette.  I’ve been wanting this for a while for a couple of reasons.  I love rose toned colors on me, they really tend to accentuate my hazel green eyes and compliment my skin tone.  When I looked at the Naked 3 palette I was disappointed, I loved the colors but they didn’t inspire me, they were all just too neutral.  And I know that’s the point of the palette to be a “naked” palette, but I still need to feel inspired to use it.  And I just am not the hugest fan of the Urban Decay shadows in general, I feel they drop down a lot and tend to really crease on me even with a primer.

So, long intro… Onto the review, I love this palette so far.  My sample came with 4 different colors that are in the sample, an ivory, a peachy gold, a pink and a burgundy.  They are all super pigmented and really soft and buttery.  I didn’t have any fall down on these which is a bonus and they didn’t crease at all (however I always use a primer).  The price is right too!  On Coastal Scents website it says the list price is $39.99 but I’ve never seen on their site for more than $19.99 which is a great deal!   Through Birchbox you can get the palette and 3 brushes for $34.99.  I haven’t bought the full palette yet but I have a feeling I will be doing so very soon.  (To be honest I’m holding out for a good coupon code, what can I say I’m a bargain shopper).

That was a long winded review so this one is going to short and sweet.  I love the scent of Hello (click here for that review) but unfortunately I can’t use this body cream.  It has sweet almond oil in it and I’m allergic to almonds.  That being said sweet almond oil is often used in body lotions to help with moisturizing, so I would think this would in fact be a super-rich moisturizer but don’t quote me on that.  I’ve set this aside for me to do a giveaway when I gather a ton of products that I can’t use.

hello Friday we’ll be talking about the final products which are the Suki Exfoliating Cleanser and the Marcelle 8in1.  Stay tuned!
